28 Nov “It’s Not Fair!”- Really?
“It’s Not Fair!” – Really?
When we think about God saving us unconditionally solely by His grace and not by our merits, we are full of thanksgiving to Him. Yet strangely, when we observe how others receive even more grace than us, our thanksgiving gives way to envy, and our joy evolves into discontentment. We all like to be treated fairly. Yet, what is considered fair, and how does fairness and grace gel together? If God is to treat us with pure fairness and no grace at all, then each of us sinner will be doomed for eternal punishment. However, our good God never treats anyone unfairly, but more often than not, He gives much more grace to those who do not deserve it.
